FS - Rear Axle/Scalloped

Post by pittsjock » Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:29 pm

I have an early complete GPW rear with scalloped axles. The spider gear is dated 3/30/42. I may have the matching front, although I have not opened it up to check the date.

Internals are complete and cleaned up very nicely. The gears are all excellent, including the pinion.

The exterior is pitted.

The F mark on the long side is nice as seen in the picture. The short side is visible, but a little rougher.

All of the bolts on the hubs are F marked, but some are pitted. I have not removed the drums so I am not sure about any other internal parts. The backing plates are a little rough, but might clean up if you are willing to put in the work.

$400 complete and I am happy to strap it to a pallet and deliver to Fastenal in Sparta, NJ. Open to trades for parts - need MB Seats, Gas Tank, Grab Handles, Top Hardware....maybe other parts too.

Ford didn't date code their axle housings... the ring gear inside is dated though!

I need the long side....in case you decide to split things up.

I don't think I paid far off the asking price just for the long axle. Good deal, shame I'm in the UK or I'd have been tempted.

I would love the short side also in case you decide on splitting it up. :P

Axles themselves are sold. The housing and gears are available if anybody wants to make an offer.
